My Students

My school is working very hard to ensure that all students make positive choices. We have implemented a school-wide research-based program called PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) which guides students on the right path in making positive choices. Our school consists of grades Pre-K through grade five. We are an extremely diverse school where students come from different backgrounds and cultures. Many of our students are brand new to the country. While this is very exciting, it is very scary for our newcomers and leads to challenges that we must overcome. Having a system in place has begun to show growth within the area of social-emotional learning. Awareness of differences, combined with explicit teaching and modeling of acceptance, leads to a more socially and emotionally healthy group of students.

In our school, it is extremely important to teach students how to be tolerant, accepting, and inclusive of the needs and well being of others.

This is developed through creating a school culture of common goals as developed through a behavior system. Doing so on ClassDojo helps us to track the positive choices that students make on this online platform.

My Project

I find that when students use iPads, they are super engaged. My goal is to use these devices in my small pull out groups for targeted instruction and motivation.

I have worked hard to learn how to implement digital learning into meaningful instruction.

Children today know how to use these tools in such a sophisticated way and I think that using this in instruction at a young age is powerful and impactful. There is such a vast amount of resources that can be utilized to meet the needs of each and every student, which is why I would love to attain these devices.
